Summary Offenses / Petty Crimes

Also known as petty crimes, summary offenses are the least serious offenses and may include disorderly conduct, loitering, harassment, etc.


Finding the Right Lawyer Can Take a Little Homework

Do your homework. Below are a few things to consider during your search for the right lawyer.

License Jurisdiction

Your lawyer must be admitted to the bar (licensed) in the jurisdiction in which your charges are filed. Also, it’s a good idea to learn how long the lawyer has been licensed in that jurisdiction.

Criminal Law Experience

Criminal law is unique in that it involves defending individuals who have been charged with criminal offenses. Look to see how long your prospective lawyer has been practicing criminal law, specifically.

Client Reviews

It is not uncommon for a lawyer to have a few negative reviews – you can build a bigger picture by considering all of the reviews posted throughout the internet.

Case Results

When your freedom is at stake, do not shy away from asking lawyers to describe previous cases they have handled that were similar to yours.

Fee Transparency

It is extremely important to have a clear understanding of what you will be expected to pay. This can vary depending upon what stages of the legal proceedings are required to resolve your case. Get an agreement in writing upfront.
